We’ve taken a 1.2mm steel shell and added large hammering to it to focus the tone and give a slightly dryer overall attack. This not only adds to the overall sound but also gives these drums a stunning visual appeal.
Made in Ridgeland, South Carolina, Gretsch USA Brooklyn Metal Chrome Steel Snare Drums feature 302 hoops that are similar in sound to die-cast, but lighter and more flexible for a more resonant shell and a better feel under the hands.
Our 6.5x14” Black Nickel over Steel snare drum offers an ideal balance of power, sensitivity, beauty, and value all in one snare drum. Taking advantage of its wide tuning range, you can achieve either a loose, slow and dry sound.
